Leap Motion and FlyInside for P3Dv4

Recommended Posts

Will Leap Motion work with FlyInside for P3Dv4 or will Leap Motion also have to be rewritten for version 4?

Thanks,

Don

I’ve hooked up Leap Motion with FI and P3Dv4 without issues.

I use a Pimax Headset and have good performance.

LM is really interesting and it’s absolutely an amazing technology. 

However I think I prefer just to use the mouse for flicking switches and turning knobs.

I found my hands were distracting and the way the knobs get turned is a little annoying and somewhat difficult.

That said LM works perfectly fine in P3Dv4

Thanks very much for the feedback. Just got my rift so I'll likely experiment with the mouse before "leaping" into leap motion. I'm most interested in having a more natural interface for preflight and post flight checklists. I feel like Leap Motion might be good for that.

Thanks again

Don

Definitely try the mouse first,

I found if more natural believe it or not to use the mouse. As I said the technology is amazing and seeing your electronic hands in the cockpit is certainly a wow factor. BUT flicking the switches and turning the knobs is weird. E.g. to turn a knob on the MCP your finger brings up a little slide scale and then you move it left and right to change the altitude or airspeed.

It just dumped the whole VR experience for me. So much easier with the mouse.  

Don't get me wrong LM is really really cool (for about 10 mins)

I haven't been impressed by Leap Motion.  I have tried it several times with very little success.  P3DV4.1 mouse dot works very well, better than the mouse in Flyinside.  Both however, I have found to be more useful than Leap Motion.
